The statement stressed that “the Yemeni people have the right to get oil derivatives as a fundamental right guaranteed by all international laws and conventions, and preventing the entry of oil derivatives constitutes a flagrant violation of human values, principles and international conventions and laws.”
“The closure of Hodeidah port, which is the main lifeline for millions of Yemenis and the denial of entry of fuel, food and medicine ships, is a remarkable war crime,” the statement read.
The statement held the international community and the United Nations responsible for their silence for the ongoing crime of aggression and its siege of our people.
“The suffering of citizens in the occupied territories reveals the agenda of the coalition targets all Yemenis without exception,” according to the statement.
